From simple prayers, sometime in December of 1989, God answered Ella to bake her great grandmother’s bread for a hobby, and that is Pastel.
Pastel is a Spanish term for Cake.By our ingenuity in grammar, Pastel has long been called in English, as a soft dough coffee bun whom the Spaniards has generously taught our ancestors and made Pastel as a part of a Camiguingnon’s delicacy. This made Pastel, a common treat in the tables of the affluent Camiguingnons of the time, especially during special gatherings and occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, fiestas, Christmas and the likes.
Pastel originally has “yema” (custard) for its filling. But during the summers of 1990 to 1993, Ella learned from culinary classes and baking workshops the rudiments and techniques of baking. She then formulated the Pastel to what is now the pillar of coffee bun taste. Today, the VjANDEP Pastel of Camiguin has 15 variety of fillings to satisfy the fancy of your taste buds.
